Fujitsu Announces RoHS-Compliant Touch Panels

Fujitsu Components Asia Pte Ltd

Singapore, May 16, 2005

Fujitsu Components Asia today announced that it will immediately begin converting its touch panel products to RoHS lead-free compliant status to meet its customers’ environmental programs. Completion of production changeover is scheduled for the end of December 2005. Contact Fujitsu Sales for details.

The change will affect all products in Fujitsu’s 4- and 7-wire resistive touch panel line. The panels will now be manufactured with a Gold-plated, flat flexible cable to replace the current Tin-Lead plated flex cable.

The new devices are drop-in replacements for the company’s existing touch panels, however, a Gold-plated connector is necessary for terminating the new Gold-plated flex tails to avoid corrosion at the connector contact points.

The new RoHS lead-free compliant touch panels will have new part numbers to differentiate them from the existing products. Pricing will be the same, or similar, to the current offering.

Fujitsu offers film-glass and film-film-plastic touch panels in sizes ranging from 1.9 to 17.3-inch (diagonal) for applications including desktop, notebook and palmtop PCs; intelligent kiosks; portable instrumentation; automotive, voting machines; process control; medical and financial equipment; and Point-of-Sale terminals. The company also offers high-transparency panels, anti-reflection coatings, anti-glare treatments and circularly polarized filters, which are particularly suitable for high-ambient light and outdoor applications.
